Siobhan Murphy

 

Siobhan Murphy is a dance artist and academic based in Melbourne. Her dance career began with the Deutsche Oper Ballet in Berlin in 1992, performing classical and contemporary repertoire.

She completed a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Spanish at the University of New South Wales in 2000 while beginning her independent choreographic practice. In 2009 she completed a practice-led PhD in Choreography at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. Her live performance works are small-scale, intimate events, often taking place in unusual venues. More recently her practice has focused on dance screen works for single channel and gallery installation outcomes. Siobhan has received grants from philanthropic, state and federal arts bodies. At Melbourne University, Siobhan teaches in the Masters in Choreography program in the Faculty of the VCA and MCM, and undergraduate dance history. Siobhan's coursework subjects include body/time/space as experienced in choreographic and stage design practice, and the use of writing as a complimentary and illuminating modality for research in performance. She supervises practice-led theses in performance at an Honours, Masters and PhD level. She has published three book chapters on the nature of writing in practice-led research in performance.
